I am posting a poem for your enjoyment, In honour of poetry month

by: Rebecca Taylor

Where would I be if I wasn’t doing what I’m doing?

Where would I be if I wasn’t the person I am?

Would I choose to go back in time

And be a Southern Belle going to all the parties like Scarlett O’Hara

Would I be an independent woman forging a path for women’s rights?

Maybe I would decide to be a man

And own a really big ranch and be able to make my own decisions

With nobody thinking, it was strange that I was running it.

 

Would I decide to go into the future

And take a space shuttle to the moon

Maybe I’d be a great doctor

And find a cure for cancer and save the lives of our friends and family

Could I be a world leader

And find an end to war and create a world of peace.

 

Would I stay in the present

And become a TV anchor

Or maybe I’d be an actress or sing on the silver stage

Accept a Grammy award and give a great speech

Could I end up being the owner my own company

Would I sell household hints or plan weddings for brides.

 

Maybe I wouldn’t be a person

Could I be a cat living with a loving family

Sipping cream from my own bowl

Would I be a wild mustang

Running free through meadows

Discovering places unknown.

 

 

Where would I be if I wasn’t doing what I’m doing?

Where would I be if I wasn’t the person I am?

Would I get the choice of where to go

Would I be able to decide what to be

Who knows where the road to life leads or where it’s come from

Who would I be, where would I be

Will remain a mystery.
